Birmingham family welcomes new child home from China

Posted: Updated:

It was a warm welcome for Ellie Beckham and her family at Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport Wednesday afternoon. 

Ellie, 2, was brought to the United States after being adopted by the Beckham family.  
The toddler had been living in an orphanage when the Beckham's first saw the little girl. 

"We both thought about it separately and prayed about it separately and came to the same conclusion that she was ours," said Heath Beckham, Ellie's father.

New family members and friends welcomed the family home with neon signs, smiles, and hugs. We're told the days ahead will be filled with trying to get Ellie adjusted to her new life in the states.  She will need to learn English and get acclimated to her new surroundings.
